Have to say that my colleague and I were thinking about Pearson’s role in “education reform” in 2010. The book chapter we wrote on the subject was published in a book called Learning Teaching from Experience, which has been available since 2011 and will be available in paperback form in July. Check out our chapter on the Vertical Integration of Education.
Learning Teaching from Experience will be published, with some minor revisions, in paperback in July. Janet Orchard and I were very honoured to have brought together so many different authors from all over the world to focus on the key question: what and how do teachers learn from experience? The chapters were originally drafted for a symposium in 2010 that was funded by the Society for Educational Studies.
The book includes contributions from Madeleine Grumet, Paolo Sorzio, Daniel Muijs, Anne Edwards, Ken Zeichner and the fabulous Californian teacher Torie Weiston, founder of the Youth Mentoring Action Network, among many others.
Learning Teaching from Experience was featured last week in the Times Educational Supplement in the UK.
And now it’s cheaper! Hurrah!
